Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. The Rehearsel For It's A Sin To Be Rich - Lightning Hopkins. Lightnin' Hopkins. UMG от лица компании Emarcy и другие авторские общества 1. Fuck All The in album Lightnin' Hopkins - It's A Sin To Be Rich 1992. You know that it's a sin to be rich but it's a low-down shame to be poor It is a sin to be rich, you know that it's a low-down shame to be poor You know a rich man ain't got a chance to go to heaven and a poor man got a hard way to go. You know I don't wanna be rich, I just wanna stay between rich and poor No, I don't wanna be rich, I just wanna live between rich and poor Yes, when I die you know I wanna go to heaven, that's when Po' Lightnin' will have a chance to go. Whoa, he gonna be the next man blow that trumpet, I wants to be there when po' Gabriel blow Whoa, that's when the world be off with the people and I can lay there and rest for sure Everybody . Album 1992 11 Songs. The Rehearsel For It's a Sin To Be Rich. It's a Sin to Be Rich, It's a Low-Down Shame To Be Poor. It's loose, shambolic, and thoroughly authentic. You can all but smell the stale smoke hovering in the air. Hopkins' guitar moans lazily as he banters with buddy John Lee Hooker, then spits out some surprisingly biting slide work. A historic document of the genre. Lightnin Hopkins It s A Sin To Be Rich, It s A Lowdown Shame To Be Poor 4:46. Lightnin Hopkins Y all Escuse Me 6: Rehearsel For It's A Sin To Be Rich. It's A Sin To Be Rich. It's A Sin To Be Rich, It's A Low-Down Shame To Be Poor. Y'All Escuse Me. Just Out Of Louisiana. Get Out Your Pencil. I Forgot To Pull My Shoes Off. Turn Me On. Lightnin' Hopkins - It's A Sin To Be Rich - Cd. Song Title. Very likely Lightnin' Hopkins' worst album, the fact that this lost album was not issued for many years after its recording a dead giveaway. A couple of tracks are conversation snippets, most of the songs loose and chaotic. Not that Lightnin' couldn't be loose and good - he was plenty. But these are bottom of the barrel, as Lightnin' goes. And the appearance of John Lee Hooker is a curiosity only. Worthwhile for the completist, but definitely to be avoided by casual and first-time Hopkins fans. Read more
